Meditations: “Stirred by the Spirit”
this interstitial surface
tensed between past and future,
this violet veil
undulating between health and illness,
this filmy membrane
polished between body and spirit
this alert eardrum
reverberating between human and divine,
We are sunrise with a remembrance of dusk,
We are soul with patina of soil,
We are stillness with mere veneer of words,
We are smooth surface of water stirred by the Spirit.
